FAQ: How to set a static IP address on an iTach Ethernet

Many control applications expect IP addresses to remain static (unchanged) on the network.  While a permanent IP address can also be obtained by setting a DHCP reservation in the router, it is also possible to set a static IP address directly on the unit.

To set a static IP address on an iTach unit follow these steps:

Enter the unit's current IP address in your browser (this can be determined using iHelp)

  1. Select "Network" from the left-hand side of the webpage.
  2. Uncheck "Enable DHCP".
  3. Enter the desired IP address.*
  4. Enter the gateway and subnet mask for the network.**
  5. Select "Save".


*Note: To avoid an IP address conflict we suggest setting a static IP address outside of the DHCP range.  The DHCP range can be found on you router's setting page.

**Note: The gateway is typically the IP address of your router, and the subnet mask is typically on residential networks.
